Today’s photo of the day focuses on a bizarre opening to Celtic’s pre-season campaign. The Hoops beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 at a Welsh training camp this afternoon. The game took place in a strange setting as it was not in a stadium, no fans were present and a cricket match appeared to be taking place in the background. However, that’s possibly not the most bizarre setting for a pre-season opener.
Indeed, in 2015 the Bhoys faced Eibar in the Basque region of Spain and as the teams walked out of the tunnel, they were piped onto the pitch!
Bit of a strange setting for first game of pre-season today with a cricket match going on in the background. Here’s another strange way to begin pre-season back in 2015 when we played against Eibar! pic.twitter.com/Wvfce34btk
